In starting this recent chapter of my blog, I decided to create some sort of accountability which would hopefully “encourage” me to write on a more regular basis. Each week, I’m making a (seemingly) feasible goal of action.
This week, I have aspired to make contact with people in the mainstream (traditional) media, since I’m working to become the next generation of “new” media. So far this week, I have endeavored to for connections with 15 people from Facebook who work for CBS. Several have responded, but the rest have either ignored my friend request or haven’t taken action. Should I move on with others, or should I keep asking those who haven’t replied?
My second goal from my last post was to become more accountable by making more frequent blog posts. That’s an easy one. By doing just this, I’ve taken action to make it happen.
My third goal is to use my time more wisely: I accomplished this goal by implementing the use of a timer when using online aps on Facebook.
A friend sent me this Youtube video which I found sadly true and a bit amusing:
After watching it, I started making a list of my goals for next week:
- I need to have a business plan, something to fall back on when I get into a funk. I have never written a business plan, but I understand that by writing others’ business plans, it can be very lucrative, but first I want to have one of my own. Any advice from those who are more seasoned in business than I would be much appreciated.
- I intend to continue making connections in the traditional media.
- I will begin/continue trying to sell my services and those of others via social networks and the Relationship Economy.
How ’bout it?
